Re: 3.0 D4D Clutch Problem

Dit is presies die slytasie wat ek op altwee ons voertuie gesien het. In albei gevalle het die thrust bearing nog glad en sag gedraai. In albei gevalle sou die koppelaar plaat nog 100 000 plus kilometers gehou het.

Ek is bly jy het reggekom.

Don't stress too quickly. The level will drop after you have done a coolant replacement even if you bled the system. Top it up, drive it home and check again tomorrow morning. The spares places should stock them. Was the higher pressure cap on there all the time before?

The system is designed to work as a specific maximum pressure. If you get a cap that is below that rating it is going to release pressure with the accompanying coolant.
